nix profile history - show all versions of a profile
nix profile history [option…]
- Show the changes between each version of your default profile:
# nix profile history Version 508 (2020-04-10): flake:nixpkgs#legacyPackages.x86_64-linux.awscli: ∅ -> 1.17.13 Version 509 (2020-05-16) <- 508: flake:nixpkgs#legacyPackages.x86_64-linux.awscli: 1.17.13 -> 1.18.211
This command shows what packages were added, removed or upgraded between subsequent versions of a profile. It only shows top-level packages, not dependencies; for that, use nix profile diff-closures (./nix3-profile-diff-closures.md).
The addition of a package to a profile is denoted by the string ∅ -> version, whereas the removal is denoted by version -> ∅.
